IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF MISSISSIPPI
WILLIAM L. KEY and MELANIE KEY
CIVIL ACTION NO. 3:16-CV-81-GHDSAA
BRIDGESTONE AMERICAS TIRE
OPERATIONS, LLC; BRIDGESTONE/
FIRESTONE AMERICAS HOLDING,
INC.; AND DOES 1-10
Defendant Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations, LLC (“Bridgestone”) requests a
temporary stay of their time to respond to plaintiffs’ motion to amend complaint, which was filed
in state court before the case was removed to this court. Docket 6. Plaintiffs have no objection
to Bridgestone’s motion.
16(b)(3)(D) of the LOCAL UNIFORM CIVIL RULES OF THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT
COURTS FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF MISSISSIPPI AND THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF
MISSISSIPPI states that “in any case that has been removed from state court, the moving party
must, within fourteen days after the Case Management Conference, file as separate docket items
any motions that were filed in state court...” (emphasis added). The Case Management
Conference in this case is set for May 16, 2016. Docket 4. Pursuant to 16(b)(3)(D), there is no
current briefing schedule regarding plaintiffs’ motion to amend complaint, and until such motion
is separately filed on CM/ECF within the time allowed under 16(b)(3)(D), defendants are under
no obligation to respond. Accordingly, it is
that Bridgestone’s motion is DISMISSED AS MOOT.
THIS the 2nd day of May, 2016.
